BTS Fans Build Forest In RM’s Name As Birthday Gift
BTS’s RM has received a very special gift from fans!
On September 3, the Korean Federation for Environmental Movement revealed that approximately 250 fans gathered on August 31 to build a forest named “BTS RM Forest No. 1” in celebration of the rapper’s upcoming birthday. The forest was planted in front of the clock tower at the Jamsil Hangang Park.
In consideration of RM, who has often shown interest in preserving the environment, fans built a forest of 1,250 spirea prunifolia (also known as bridal wreath spirea).
In honor of RM’s birthdate September 12, 1994, fans donated 1,994,000 won (approximately $1,600) and 9,120,000 won (approximately $7,500) for a total of 11,114,000 won (approximately $9,100) to go towards the forest.
The fan who initially came up with the idea to create “BTS RM Forest No. 1” shared, “I’m very happy that many fans from Korea and abroad took part in creating ‘BTS RM Forest No. 1.’ In 2020, we will create ‘BTS RM Forest No. 2’ and provide fresh air and a rest area for citizens who visit the forest.”
Meanwhile, BTS is currently having an extended period of rest.
